Those Who Follow Me
Sometimes I walk this road alone -- Sometimes they follow me.
Sometimes the places that I go aren’t meant for them, but me.
And, as a poet, I have responsibility, and must step very carefully.
I write of things that I have done and things that I would be
Always aware, in my steps are those who follow me.
Some follow in blind loyalty, some by the trust they have in me.
Some come out of curiosity and some come with expectancy
To see me trip and fall.
And so before this journey ends I’m sure I’ll satisfy them all.
